ÃÂ«One who looked into the netaudio scene over the last few months couldn't have noticed the proliferation of amazing works signed by Daniel Maze, published through many different netlabels around the world and always characterized by different sonorities one from each other. This Canadian producer from Vancouver is known for approaching many various styles and with this EP he adds another variation to his musical research. Through these five tracks you'll find a common element which always returns (in the cover artwork too) and that's the possibility to stop, rewind and forward every sound and explore its gradient with analog tape, creating atmospheres full of memories making you feel like watching old photos in black and white or a forgotten film of your parents. Every song has the typical melancholy of past memories and, like we do in our mind, Daniel stops and rewinds a detail or a particular element to focus on it, freezing sweet melodies and textures, and then, suddenly, blocks everything out, remembering you that nice memories sooner or later end, and a song like Ã¢ÂÂDon't cry JenniferÃ¢ÂÂ is there to give you these kind of feelings. The ethereal melodies of Ã¢ÂÂChamber Music OneÃ¢ÂÂ and Ã¢ÂÂHow's the SerenityÃ¢ÂÂ are even more evocative and the final Ã¢ÂÂSafe for nowÃ¢ÂÂ sounds like a recording session for magnetic tape, drones and stretched guitar... amazing how this strange ensemble works well together.
In this EP, Daniel sketches very emotive experimental music with a noticeable attention to melody and consistent to what he did before, but adding a delicacy and an inspiration that's not easy to find elsewhere.ÃÂ» - Filippo Aldovini
